## Students like Saxon because they feel successful in math instead of overwhelmed.

The most popular homeschooling math program hands down! Highly recommended by both Mary Pride and Cathy Duffy, Saxon Math also wins our award for the "Most Requested Text." Saxon math is a "user-friendly" math program - even for Algebra, Trigonometry, Calculus and other usually difficult math topics. Learning is incremental and each new concept is continuously reviewed, so the learning has time to "sink in" instead of being forgotten when the next topic is presented. Higher scores on standardized tests and increased enrollments in upper-level math and science classes have resulted where Saxon has been used in public schools. Students like Saxon because they feel successful in math instead of overwhelmed. Because of the format, children are able to work more independently.

The more affordable option would be to buy 1 workbook and have a notebook for each student where they could just answer the questions from the workbook. And buy 1 test booklet and just make copies for the warm-ups and tests.

I hope this helps.

There is a lot of review. There are typically 30 review problems per lesson once you pass Math 3. However, concepts are built upon in the review problems. Creativity is required in the review questions to solve problems that are similar, but not exactly the same as concepts previously presented. A piece of information may be missing that you are expected to figure out how to calculate. On high school math team, this is exactly what we were required to do at a tournament. Only students use those skills every day with this curriculum! It is challenging and rigorous.

For this reason, it may not work with all learning styles. If a child needs to repeat the exact same kind of problem over and over to learn all the steps involved, or if they have a hard time learning multiple concepts per lesson, they will have a hard time with this curriculum. Many lessons in Algebra 1/2 present multiple concepts, but they all fit together intuitively. There are typically only 4 to 8 problems practicing these new concepts per lesson. Supplemental practice is available on selected concepts in the back of the book from Levels 54 to 76. No supplemental practice in Algebra 1/2. I don't know about 87.

If there is a downside to this curriculum, it is that it is quite time-consuming. This is has been consistently true through all the levels. Levels 1-3 require a lot of teacher time. 54 to 76 move the time burden to the student. For me, time spent doing this kind of math is fun and well worth it. In my opinion, if you want to train an engineer, this is your choice for math curriculum.
